The State Integrated Cooperative Development Project will provide adequate support to those involved in agricultural and allied activities and also help in checking the forced migration from the hills.
Under the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Farmers Welfare Scheme, multi-purpose loans of up to one lakh rupees will be made available to the farmers at a very low interest rate of two per cent. The scheme is an important step towards the goal of doubling the income of farmers in the State by 2022, an official statement said.
